Visit the wildlife refuge, Bonda Wildlife Sanctuary, in Ponda Taluka. Stroll through the botanical garden or bring the kids to Deer Safari Park, viewing Gaur and the Sambhar deer.

History and Culture

The Museum of Christian Art is a unique stop while in Goa, as it was the only Christian art museum in Asia, established in 1994 and once an active convent. Located just off the Mandovi River, surrounded by churches, visit the museum along a religious tour through the area.

One must-visit while in Goa is Fort Aguada, a 17th-century Portuguese fort and lighthouse. Stroll through the historic site and enjoy unbeatable views of Sinquerim Beach and the Arabian Sea.
